Sweet 16...Seize the Birthday #18

Internet, internet - why art thou connections so fickle of late?  I'm sprinting in to share my first Seize the Birthday entry - a card for my husband's niece, who just turned 16.  Yes - late card and that rests solely on my husband's shoulders for not reminding me!   She's a delightful, athletic, bright, personable lovely young woman, full of sparkle and and dazzlement!

Here's the inspiration sketch:

and here's my 'turned it upside down and added a bit'' interpretation, featuring my new PS Numbers dies and some Vintage Bliss paper from Pebbles (sweet, swoonable patterns!).

Hope she'll be okay with this card, to be 'in person' delivered next week, when my husband travels to see his family, enroute to his bike race at Mt. Hood.

While I have your attention - and if you have a moment - one  more quick share: 

Happy 15 Months Old card for my nephew - heading to the post in the morning! How time flies - our wee  guy is now a busy toddler - and a rather loud one at that.  No volume control to be found. He truly is hilarious!

Thanks for dropping in; please let me know you did! Your comments are always welcome and appreciated, immensely!

Perfect sweet 16 card Carol! Flowers, polka dots and pink - it doesn't get any better than this! Your families must absolutely treasure the cards that you so lovingly craft for them!

I would love to see more pics of the sweet card you made for your 'quiet' little nephew! It looks like it is a tri fold cold - yes/no? The paper collection is divine, but the car is just too cute for words (fussy cut or a die, paper pieced). Sorry for all the ?'s but I absolutely love this and really would love to know all the deets!
